    I too have crossed that river into middle age, and seem to be finding myself going back to many of my old haunts in literature. I am back to being obsessed with Northern Ireland.

    I am currently rereading a thriller set in that most pleasant milieu, Belfast in the seventies and eighties. I use the term thriller with hesitation though, as it simply (though quite handily) uses that framework to help us wrap our heads around the level of violence and its pervasive nature in those six counties. And how it was fed, to both sides, by various factions of government. The book is Chris Petit’s The Psalm Killer.Report

    I am reading Ridley’s latest book on Innovation. I have found nothing especially insightful in it.

    Just finished reading Scale, by West. Kind of interesting observations on how most types of complex systems (from organisms to cities and companies) scale with size.

    The most interesting new read of the CV era has been “Fully Grown” by Vollrath. Fascinating alternative take on the economic growth slowdown of the last twenty years or so. His argument, which is convincing, is that these are basically the side effects of prosperity as we choose to have fewer kids later in life and as we shift from goods to Lower productivity growth services.

    As for creating, I am currently doing research on the topic of cooperation. Rereading the dozen or so books on the topic that I own and the myriad journal articles (on game theory, reciprocity, Assortative matching, inclusive fitness, etc)Report

    Something that has been tickling the back of my brain since I read this post Rufus, and I haven’t been able to put my mind on it until now. The author photo, and I am assuming it is the publisher’s photo, could have come straight off of a mid-sixties Blue Note record.

    I couldn’t place it until just now, but there you go. It gives me a slightly different perspective. I love it when art meets and clashes/circumnavigates with art.Report
